What People

say about us

HJ Nelson is more than a coach, she is more than a mentor. The journey she takes you on is one of deep self-discovery, a practical and powerful examination of who you are and what motivates you. She never takes you anywhere you’re not comfortable to go, and her wisdom and advice is always thoughtful, and deep. There’s so much to say about HJ — she has the most amazing network, which she shares generously, and I have been exposed to many other helpers and thinkers through her. She is the most amazing listener you will ever meet. Her methodology is unique. I’ve had many coaches over the years, HJ doesn’t just stand out as the best, she is in a different league from anyone else. Is this enough of a recommendation? Believe me, I have toned it down so I don’t sound too gushing — HJ Nelson is an extraordinary person.

When I was looking for a coach, I knew I needed someone who excelled in the field. Cecara certainly fulfilled that and then some!! By going deep, helping you sit with questions that you may not have asked yourself (or avoided asking yourself!) you can make a real sustainable shift in not just the superficial behaviour but who you are in the world. Cecara is responsive, warm and caring and gives the right balance of challenge and support as you go through the development journey. Following my coaching engagement with Cecara, I am braver to lean into those tough questions “Who have you uniquely been put in this world to be?” “How will you lean into your purpose and legacy?” “What questions have you avoided asking yourself?” I recommend Cecara to any senior leader who is looking for that next level of transformation in themselves as a leader and more importantly as a human being.

During my systemic coaching journey with Cecara, I experienced a real awakening. I was able to fully explore my inner self, get clearer on my sense of priorities, my identity and to leverage the power of connection. I would recommend her to anyone eager to explore their sense of identity & purpose, and develop their ability to build sustainable relationships.

Cecara combines the professional responsibility on behalf of management with their ability to build a trusted relationship with employees, drawing out the real issues through her empathy and listening skills.

David Butter / Management Consultant, Former-Executive Vice President WPP

Cecara is an expert in her area and sees situations and solutions from multiple perspectives leading to first class results… The project we worked on together was one of the highlights of my career and Cecara’s participation was key to its success.
